I graduated from Temasek Polytechnic with a Diploma in Applied Food Science and Nutrition in 2011. I did an internship at Singapore Sports Council where I assisted in measuring the hydration status of the national fencing team.
I went on to further my studies and graduated from Newcastle University through Singapore Institute of Technology with a BSc (Hons) in Food and Human Nutrition in 2013.
My final year research project involved assessing the dietary salt and calcium intake of adolescents in Singapore using Food Frequency Questionnaire and 24-hour recall to investigate the relationship between intakes of these nutrients on gender, age, BMI and blood pressure.
My previous work experience as a nutritionist in the last 2 years where my job scope involved analysing nutritional information of food items and conducting nutrition workshop to children, working adults as well elderly. This has created many opportunities to interact and understand their dietary concerns.
As a Research Officer at CNRC, I am interested to explore on the eating behavior of children and how it would relate to their health outcomes.
